Update: Deal is now live, promoted on the Starbucks website [starbucks.com]:
Got a Starbucks gift card? Get $5 free when you join our loyalty program by 3/14.

We’ll give you $5 to register your card and join My Starbucks Rewards. Ends March 14 (new members only). [starbucks.com]
Starbucks will be offering a $5 credit when you register a card for the first time on a new Starbucks Rewards account [starbucks.com]. The promotion is set to run from February 28 through March 14, 2013.

So far, the promotion has not been publicly communicated by Starbucks corporate, but some stores tipped the offer last weekend during the now-expired promotion to receive a free $5 gift card with in-store purchase of whole bean coffee 1-lb. bag. (See images of informal in-store signage here and here.)

The details of the $5 bonus offer are still sketchy at the moment, but I verified the information at a couple local stores. One barista advised me of the upcoming promo when I bought a bag of coffee over the weekend. When I asked a barista at another store, he was unfamiliar with the upcoming offer, but after consulting a book behind the counter, he confirmed the promotion would be offered from Feb 28 through Mar 14.

I also contacted customer service via the Starbucks website to inquire about the promotion, and received the following reply via e-mail:
Quote :
Thank you for contacting Starbucks, I hope you are having a good day! Yes, we are having a promotion coming up where you can get a $5.00 credit if you are a brand new starbucks customer registering your card for the first time. The $5.00 credit should be added to the card up to 72 hours after your card has been registered.
Thanks again for writing us. If you ever have any questions or concerns in the future, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Additional details will be posted when they become available.

If i went to Starbucks and grabbed an empty giftcard, and registered it, would i get $5?
Or does it have to have a balance on it?
You can grab an empty giftcard and leave in front of barista's face? EEK!

You can't register a card that hasn't been activated (at some point in it's life had a balance on it).

thanks for the info guys!
just brought 10x $5GC's registered 2 so far, works like a charm

If after a few days i unregister the cards from the bogus accounts and add them all into my main account, do you think that'll be a problem?

Why are people buying physical cards?

Download the Starbucks mobile app, create an account and get a digital card.



This is free.

Create an account and digital card and $5 pops up a few minutes later.

Then create another account and repeat.

I already sent mine to my main account. Didn't unregister, just transferred if from the new account. Not sure if waiting would be better.

activated my 3 cards from the i pound coffee sale, then unregistered right away and added those cards to my normal starbucks account and transferred the funds to my reg starbucks card. In the end, paid 6 dollars for 3 pounds of coffee
